Beginning today, March 2, 2020, university and art school students take over Fresh Art International for one school week, with daily episodes and essays. Find out what issues and ideas spark their creative impulse in conversations we recorded in Chicago, Detroit and Toronto, and read responses to some of the ideas they talk about from students in Miami.
